In this lesson I’m going to show you a slap bass technique that I use a lot. I say ‘secret’ because it’s so hard to see what’s going on sometimes with slap bass that it’s easy to miss the simple little techniques that are thrown into the mix of a groove to give the bass line that super percussive vibe.
Within this tutorial I’m going to peel back the layers of a slap groove and highlight where I’m using these ‘secret triplets’ to really enhance the overall groove and vibe of the bass line!
Now grab you’re bass and get in the shed!
